The KEEP IT LIVE project launches with a free taster day!

Drop in to the MAP ‘Live Lounge’ at Wayland Academy in Watton between 11am – 2pm on Saturday 11 January to find out more about the project, meet the team, try out the equipment and sign up.

The sessions are open to young people from across the region aged 12 to 18 who are in the early stages of their musical journey.

Participants are invited to sign up for a series of 2-hour Saturday workshops where they will develop musical skills, gain confidence, meet other musicians and work toward performing. The 10 session course will cost just £35 which will be subsidised by Youth Music funding. This fee will allow participants to receive teaching from experienced music leaders, give them access to state of the art equipment and all instruments will be provided. The course will culminate in a public performance in April 2020.

Eugene Pryer chairman of MAP said: “This course is ideal for musicians who already play an instrument and now wish to take the next steps of learning songs and performing in public. The sessions are open to individuals and bands and will include exploring a variety of musical genres and styles. We are also looking for young people to sign up to support the running of the live performances and we will be able to teach them skills in lighting, sound technology and stage management. It is our aim that the project will enable young people to appreciate the impact and importance of making and sharing live music.”
